That's why I hate those kinds of 'floating' throttles, where they throttle you whenever they damn well feel like not giving you service anymore. Top 5%? That's nice, except you have no idea where that threshold is or if you actually ARE in the top 5% when they throttle you. You just suddenly loose use of your data.

That said, I have no qualms with, say, T-Mobile's "You have 2GB (or 5 or whatever) of high speed and then we'll throttle you to 2G". At least then you can plan for, and keep track of, your data usage.
